Whatever you do with Sign Language Flash Cards, your kids will be improving their small muscle coordination.  As they use their fingers to make the signs, they could be actually be preparing themselves for learning to write!  This can be helpful especially for kids who shy away from crafts activities and need ways to improve their hand skills.
